working hard all shift, there's always something to do, whether its cleaning, washing dishes, using the dishwasher, mopping, sweeping, collecting stock from stock cupboards or laying all the tables.

the management is very friendly and welcomed me when i first joined. the hardest part of the job is how hot it is in the kitchen. its a very hard working job because its like a workout.


the most enjoyable part of the job is laying the tables correctly and filling the waters.
Pros
half an hour break, friendly people working and living there
Cons
rooms are so warm, feel lightheaded and sick from the chemicals

Working at the Hawthorns has been an insight into true quality. The work environments are high class and provide an excellent foundation to perform to the highest standards without unnecessary challenges.

Management are supportive of your growth and development and there are opportunities to push on within the various teams at the Hawthorns.


I cannot recommend the Hawthorns enough as an employer and would recommend anyone to experience what an excellent employer they are.
Pros
High quality work environments, supportive manager, opportunities to develop
Cons
Long hours sometimes
